The basidiomycete fungi Phanerochaete chrysosporium has been sequenced at DOEs JGI
site in Walnut Hill California. There are 28 million bases of sequence in 996 contigs. This
set has been searched for hits to P450 sequences and some of the genes have been
assembled. There is still a lot of work to do on this set. There are 85 scaffolds that have
P450 sequence and 123 different heme signature regions have been found so far. This
suggests that there are at least 123 different P450 genes in this fungus. Some are pseudogenes
but at least 109 appear to cover the full length of a P450. 163 P450 fragments have been found.
89 of these 163 have been analyzed in detail and gene intron-exon boundaries have been defined.
78 full length P450s have been assembled.
